% in the united states and much less than that around the world can clearly sustain a higher price level for stocks from here. >> burt, what about the fact we're jamming $100 billion of treasuries into the market week after week? at what point the market, the global buyer and the uptick, the take-up rate does people just say, no mas? >> yeah, you know that is a problem. but i will say this, the stimulus for around the world, especially china, their recovery package is to get the united states fixed because if they get united states fixed we buy their stuff again. i think the world is going to continue to absorb these and they're going to do so largely because it helps us out. at the end of the day they know if they don't step up to the plate and buy these the end consumer in the united states, which is the global spender, is going to end up being weaker than what they want. attend of the day, the stem louse and the recovery of china and the rest of the world is to really bail us out and the way they bail us out is to buy our treasuries. >> john, by any measure a subpar recovery as far as

of this solution, if abu dhabi and united states force dubai to sever a lot of those ties as part of the humbling of dubai in dealing with this debt, if dubai was to sever ties with iran, how significant would that be? >> that's a loaded question. >> the politics of it, but just on the financial side. >> 10% residential ownership impact. math is straightforward there. >> not touching it. in other words, i'm not touching it with a 50-foot pole. already. saad is going to be with us throughout the day. really, is dubai going to last. and we have our reporting on that as well. right now, let's get back to new york and go through all the markets around the world, get the reaction and find out what the other big stories are. let's get to the new york stock exchange. >> thanks very much, erin. for all this talk about a lack of transparency and dumping all this news over a long weekend, our markets here are relatively flat this morning. traders down here agree that neither abu dhabi or dubai can afford the reputational risk of walking away from the debt. it appears that will not be happening. some of the

in europe or the united states or the ones with the five guys that actually matter in your country who are going to make the decisions. i think that's what maybe the global market is starting to see. more globalized in one sense than we've ever been before but also more parochial in another sense. >> although i never argue against the interconnectedness, we have seen that in terms of asset classes and around the world from the last crisis that we've been going through. we have a maturity schedule if you want to look at it, for dubai, in terms of where the debt needs to be paid and when it needs to be paid. it adds up to $8 billion or so in 2010. no real word here at this point in abu dhabi. a lot of speculation all of this is, in fact, abu dhabi is saying no mas, we're not there for you any longer. we shall see what happens there. final thought for me on this. i mentioned this wednesday. mgm, the huge city center project, dubai world, their partner. fully funded. everybody who i've talked to close to that project indicates they got their money. so no real concern there. but i've heard
